Water and energy are inextricably linked. Energy production is one of our nation’s largest consumers of water, and moving and purifying water consumes lots of energy. But water is also a precious resource, far more so than energy. You can live for 5 days without electricity, but try doing that with water.
About 1% of the world’s water is fresh and potable and in Michigan, we are surrounded by 20% of the world’s potable water supply. It is a resource that we all cherish, and water protection and conservation is more important than ever. Even in Michigan, we are over-taxing our aquifers and wasting water at an enormous rate. Many of the techniques below exist to build homes that use far less water with no decrease in performance. These techniques can also save a lot on your monthly water bill.
Meadowlark listened to us throughout the project, they always respected our opinions, they responded immediately when we requested their help and they completed all work to our total satisfaction.
Meadowlark designed and implemented an exterior remodel - new longer windows, insulation/air sealing, hardie board siding, enlarged porch & patio, metal roof plus main level gut/remodel. We love the results!
At the design phase, they accounted for our preferences and vision, while steering us away from choices that would have detracted from the house's aesthetic.
Meadowlark completely reconfigured the living/dining/kitchen space in our condo. A total transformation that gave us the house of our dreams!
